Currently this is the only package of any size being developed for SHR, and it's the only one with any instructions. If you start another SHR project (please check with Bobby before starting one), put instructions for working on the project here!
You must build openembedded before you can build SHR packages. The easiest way is to go to http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Mokomakefile and build using the instructions for FSO.
* Note: if building FSO fails using MokoMakefile (zhone! or no dbus show up on the top of the newly booted image), try using this method: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/FSO
The rest of these instructions are written assuming that you used Mokomakefile and that the directory you downloaded the base Makefile into (using wget) is $MOKO.
You must also download the SHR code using subversion. See http://projects.openmoko.org/projects/shr. We will refer to the directory to which you downloaded the project as $SHRSVN. (This directory should contain $SHRSVN/packages/openmoko-dialer3.bb)
Set up your BBPATH
Set up the CACHE
Set up your local.conf
Cd to $MOKO/openembedded
Append the following lines to $MOKO/build/conf/local.conf:
BBFILES += "$SHRSVN/trunk/packages/*.bb $MOKO/openembedded/packages/*/*.bb" SELECTED_OPTIMIZATION = "-Os -g"
Note: Spaces are important in your bitbake conf files! You must have spaces before & after the = or +=
Set up your openmoko.conf (if using 2007.2)
and make sure that these Gtk+ options are set:
# Select package versions we want to use. PREFERRED_PROVIDER_gtk+ = "gtk+-fastscaling" PREFERRED_VERSION_gtk+-fastscaling = "2.10.14"
Add your cross-compiler to your PATH
After the first time you build successfully, you can build with
bitbake -b openmoko-dialog3_svn
which is much faster.
To recompile, and only recompile
bitbake -c compile -b $SHRSVN/trunk/packages/openmoko-dialer3.bb
One thing to try is to unset all environment variables not listed in this page. LIBPATH and INCLUDE can be particularly troublesome.
